  • Yield: 4 servings of 5 pieces each 1x


These low carb grilled chicken wings are smothered in a delicious sticky sauce featuring gluten removed IPA from Omission as well as grapefruit and some Asian flavors that make them spicy, sweet, tangy and totally craveworthy!



For the sauce:

  • 1 cup Omission IPA
  • 1 tsp ruby red grapefruit zest
  • 3 Tbsp ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 Tbsp granulates sugar substitute
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum (or other thickener)
  • 2 Tbsp butter

For the chicken wings:

  • Approximately 20 wing segments (10 whole wings, separated)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped cilantro and scallions to garnish


To make the sauce:

  1. Combine the Omission IPA, grapefruit zest, grapefruit juice, fish sauce, sweetener, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and coriander in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil – then lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until reduced to about 1/2 cup. Remove from heat and whisk in the butter and xanthan gum. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.

To make the wings:

  1. Season the wings liberally with salt and pepper. Preheat your grill for about ten minutes – then place the wings on the grill (don’t crowd them) and cook on medium high heat for about 5 minutes per side or until grill marks are achieved and the chicken is mostly cooked through. Reduce the heat a bit (or move the wings to the side if char-grilling) and baste with sauce – then cook for an additional 5 minutes per side (or longer depending on your preference,) basting each time you turn.
  2. Serve hot, garnished with cilantro and scallions.
